If, like us, you've been wondering how Katy Perry looked so darn hot at the VMAs this weekend, we’ve got the answer. Yup, straight from the shores of LA, Katy’s personal make-up artist, Jake Bailey dished on his top tips and explained Katy's flawless look was down to an even tan courtesy of St. Tropez, so listen up!

With a mix of their Gold Skin Illuminator and Bronzing Rocks, Jake was the man to get Mrs Brand looking red-carpet ready. 'Katy just returned from a small vacation so she had a little bit of colour, so I wanted to make the most of it,' he revealed. 'I grabbed the St. Tropez Gold Skin Illuminator and applied it all over the body including her arms and legs. After her make-up was complete, I applied the St. Tropez Bronzing Rocks onto her face very lightly with a large powder brush to give her a nice bronze finish'. Et voila!

What’s more, we spoke to St. Tropez’s skin finishing expert, Fiona Locke about how to re-create Katy’s sexy look at home. Here’s her top tips...

1.  For an extra smooth finish ensure that you have prepared your legs with St. Tropez Body Polish to remove any dry skin, focusing on the knees, ankles and feet.

2.    St. Tropez Everyday Perfect Legs is a quick and easy way to help hide imperfections on the legs and give an airbrushed effect.  Start by applying the Gradual Tan Everyday Body lotion in the white pump, smoothing evenly over the leg and blending up over the knee and gently down onto the feet.

4.  Shimmering St. Tropez Bronzing Rocks provide the perfect skin finish to a St Tropez tan, adding smooth, golden bronze glow. Apply to the face and décolletage with a soft brush and blend over the contours.
5.  Finally, highlight cheekbones, décolletage, arms and shins with St. Tropez Skin Illuminator.
So girls, mitts at the ready for a good dose of K-Pez-ness.
